Yahoo messenger is a great tool for voice and video chatting, a software that everyone has installed on their desktop, laptop and mobile devices. Yahoo Messenger was already available for the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad, but now it’s also available for the iPad 2.
The iPad with its larger screen is a good tablet for video chatting, but the first generation iPad did not support video chatting because it did not have a front camera. Now there is the iPad 2, with a front camera and support for FaceTime. There are many other alternatives to FaceTime and one of them is the Yahoo Messenger App for the iPad 2.
The Yahoo Messenger App was updated earlier yesterday and can now be installed on an iPad 2 to utilize its front camera for video chatting. Although, I’m not sure how good the quality of the video call will be, it’ll still be useful as you can also make video calls and voice calls. Yahoo Messenger on the iPhone is a very useful app, just as it will be on the iPad 2 as many users have an Yahoo account.
The new version is also optimized for the iPad 2, for it’s large screen and for multi-tasking to make the whole Yahoo experience faster and easier.
You can download Yahoo Messenger App for iPad 2 over at the Apple App Store for free. It weighs about 22mb and is compatible with iOS devices running iOS 4 and above.
